    I wasn't nervous as much as excited. I knew this was what I wanted and was ready to get on with it! However, as this year has progressed and the classes have become more difficult, I find myself extremely nervous and agitated at times...except during clinicals! I LOVE my clinicals!

    I just started two days ago and the day before I started I swear I thought I was coming down with the flu!! I ached, lost all appetite and just want hide and never come out. Now, I'm excited to see what the next weeks to come hold for me and my classmates. I just look forward to joining the workforce as a proud nurse!

    I just got into an ADN program that starts in February. When I got the acceptance email a couple weeks ago I screamed...I was in public and I terrified everyone around me hahaha!!! But since then I've been super anxious and nervous and rushing to get all the leg work done in time. I am always anxious and worried when it cones to school and I always wonder if I did everything I could to get the grade I far it's worked out for me, I had a 4.0 in all my science core prerequisites when I applied for the program.

    So now I always say, if you're not worried then you're not doing it right!!!

    I recently started my BSN program and at first I was overwhelmed. I actually got very sick with colitis from the stress which triggered it. I was in and out of hospitals and ER's. I even missed my first lab! I eventually got better and I learned how to cope with it and be organized and stay on top of things. I passed all of my classes and this semester I start clinicals. I am very excited but nursing school always makes me nervous. Attending a clinical, taking an exam, or starting a new class. It never fails to stress me out.
